Course Introduction to Ecometabolomics for Ecologist
Monday 27 August - Tursday 31 August 2018
The course will provide an overview about the application of metabolomics in ecological and biodiversity research. We will explore the tools and approaches that are used to obtain, process and analyse metabolomics data.
Towards a Global One Health: an interdisciplinary lens to explore synergies, trade-offs and pathways for food systems transitions
Monday 27 - Friday 31 August 2018
The health of people, animals, plants and their environments are closely connected. This short course on Global One Health (GOH) aims to foster interdisciplinary thinking on the cutting edge of agricultural production, the food supply chain and nutritional and public health outcomes (human, plant and animal) in the framework of a food systems approach. Using an academically rooted food systems approach, synergies and trade-offs between scientific disciplines, such as social, environmental, microbiological, animal, plant, epidemiological disciplines, will be explored. Also the role of public and private stakeholders in the food system (farm to fork) will be discussed.
Course Matrix Approaches to Health Demography
Monday 5 - Friday 16 November 2018
In this course, matrix methods will be used to analyze models based on prevalence and incidence data. The methods will go beyond the fixation on mean results and will incorporate variance and stochasticity. The class will introduce methods based on Markov chains, Markov chains with rewards, multistate matrix models, and matrix calculus. The new analyses will be compared, where possible, to traditional approaches.
